The EDI PowerDrive™ Series is an advanced suite of drivetrain products that enable OEMs, suppliers and integrators to rapidly and cost effectively bring electric and hybridized vehicles to market while reducing overall development costs.
Today’s commercial fleets and passenger vehicles alike must be able to optimize fuel economy, driving performance and efficiency for a multitude of driving cycles. EDI PowerDrive™ replaces the stock transmission and performs as an All-In-One drivetrain that can function in Two Hybrid or Two Pure Electric Modes providing and optimized powertrain for any driving situation.
The EDI PowerDrive™ system intelligently and automatically adapts its function so it can operate as either a pure electric (EV) vehicle for neighborhood driving, or as a Series Hybrid, optimum for stop and go city traffic conditions, or as an efficient Parallel Hybrid that is ideal for the highway. It also features and EV+ mode for hill climbing and added acceleration.
The EDI PowerDrive™ powertrain system is less complex, less costly, more efficient and lighter than the competition.
The unique inline form factor allows the drivetrain to integrate into any light, medium or heavy-duty vehicle design. This results in rapid time to market with less development costs. The efficient design also reduces drivetrain weight providing even better fuel efficiencies and emissions reductions. The system shifts seamlessly between its four modes of operation providing the optimal architecture for any driving cycle.
Features of the EDI PowerDrive™ include:
- 4 driving modes: EV, EV+, Series & Parallel
- Lighter weight and more efficient
